Scoble: In memory of Alan Turing

In this post, where Scoble returns to his unabashed MSFT hyping (YAWN!), he does take time to remind us of Alan Turing.
One of the most influential thinkers in the mathematical, computing and intelligence sciences, Alan Turing was persecuted by the British government for being a gay man.
Did I mention that he was one of the people who finally broke the Enigma code, twice? The original code, and the refactored cipher.
If you ever get the chance, watch the film Breaking the Code. Derek Jacobi, who played Turing onstage for years prior to this film, captures the wide-eyed, yet courageous approach that this man brought to his life.
